At the height of the harvest season, many gardeners and amateur gardeners are trying to make maximum use of the gifts of nature. Of fragrant apples for the winter harvest jam, dried fruit and home-made juices. When large volumes of conventional juicers can not handle, and press-pressed apple in this case can be very useful.
Principle of operation: manufacture their own
Presses for juice extraction can be made and with their hands out of scrap materials, there is nothing daunting. Their main task - obtaining pure juice from crushed fruit by mechanical pressure on the mass.
Structures may be of the following types:
Regardless of the type of energy can do manually or by an electric motor. In this design principle is similar in all species and consists of:
- apertured container pulp (crushed material);
- tray (sokopriemnika);
- a base (frame);
- an operating mechanism (a screw with a handle in the case of a mechanical embodiment).
Among the homemade versions are the most common:
- screw (screw) press for juicing;
How to make a screw press?
Screw embodiment of the easiest to manufacture. The piston itself is set in motion by the action of the screw, the pressure on the fruit mass is uniform, contributing to the most optimal cutoffs, leaving a substantially dry cake. It is believed that in this way juicing apple carried by about 70%.
Manufacture screw press can be both wood and metal. In the first case, you can do without welding skills.
What you need:
- material for the frame-support (wood or metal);
- metal or wooden container for the tank and a perforated tank;
- a screw mechanism with a handle;
- consumables (nuts, bolts, screws).
Going support frame. Typically it takes the form of a rectangular base, disposed vertically with the lower frame to the pallet.
If the wood material is used, it is better not to use the coniferous due to tar that might impair the taste quality of the product.
We do tank. It can be built independently of the steel sheet, but nice suit and an old tank made of stainless steel or any other suitable container.
Photo clearly shows the location of the perforations for free juice out of the pulp.
The screw mechanism is placed directly above the tank. At the end of the screw is round, the diameter is equal to the tank for a uniform distribution of pressure.
Hand squeezer press spin may be made based on a conventional jack, then the pressure will be carried out not only from above but also from below.
The tray should be placed under the perforated tank to collect the liquid.
For uniform pressure on the pulp should break it into small bags of fabric or nylon, so the juice is squeezed efficiently.
How to make a hydraulic press?
Hydraulic press for apples and other fruits is considered to be more productive and allows you to spend less effort on the production of juice. Design features are generally similar to the worm analog, the main difference is the only mechanism for pressing fruit mass.
Instructions located in the table, will make a press hydraulic type in the home:
Manufacture of the support frame is different from a screw-type device. It can be used as metallic structure, and a frame of the timber.
As the housing for the hydraulic pressing mechanism can be used barrel, plastic or wood homemade tank with a drain hole at the bottom.
Thrust circle better be made of hardwood. It is not recommended to use as the material of particleboard as formaldehyde, part of the material may adversely affect the taste, and generally not safe.
As sokopriemnika pallet can be used or an empty container.
A press juicer for apples is powered by a hydraulic element, which is mounted on the rail above the tank
It is important to ensure a snug fit to the reference range for even pressure distribution.
Recycled cake will fit perfectly as a fertilizer, so it is better not to throw out, and send to the compost pile.
For the manufacture of delicious homemade juice is not always advisable to purchase a juicer or brand mechanical press for apples. The price for such units do not always justify the frequency of their use, it's not every year has been a good harvest.
With the initial skills, the use of tools, there is the desire and the time it is possible to self-assemble home homemade hand press for juice.
Videos in this article clearly shows all the details of the assembly process of the unit. And if you have your own ideas and thoughts on the matter, I welcome your comments below.
